I have been living without a tv for nine years or so and it feels pretty good. I might miss some sports and special events, along with being a little slow on certain cultural topics, but I know personally I am better off for it. Though I know many people who it helps them get through their day, so it is important to many.

btw: if I was still pro sports crazy then I would most likely still have a set...

In place of current tv I listen to a couple of concerts a night or other music and if I want to watch something, I will watch some "classic" tv or a movie. Thanks to netflix, I have finally received the foreign film education that I have been wanting for years.

Now that I've found this site, I can watch programs I enjoy and not be assaulted by network television and their desire to shove sex and violence down my throat, along with the daily dose of loose morals. I simply don't need that in my life anymore. My husband still likes watching the news, and he loves his football, so we will probably keep the cable tv. But that doesn't mean I have to watch it. I just sit here with my laptop and headphones and watch The Lucy Show, or random commercials.
